Vandalia is called the “Crossroads of America.” And it’s true. Our city is nestled conveniently near the intersections of Interstates 75 and 70 and we’re situated within a 90-minute drive of 55% of the country’s population. But, despite all of the access to major metropolitan centers, we remain a small city that retains its small town heart.
Vandalia offers affordable housing, reasonable tax rates, and one of the lowest crime rates in the region. Our Vandalia-Butler School District has been consistently awarded Excellence ratings by the State of Ohio. Our recreational facilities set the standard for excellence in our region. And, our Police, Fire, and EMS services routinely score high marks from the citizens they protect and serve.
Vandalia takes great pride in our city government. Learn more about our government structure, meet our city leaders, and connect to our official city website here.
